Consider adding a potted basil plant to your kitchen windowsill, or planting dill and cilantro in raised beds. These herbs can be used to add flavor to your meals, such as in sauces like pesto and chimichurri. Dried herbs also have their place in the kitchen, and it's better to dry your homegrown herbs than to buy jars from the store. While fresh herbs can't be completely replaced, drying them allows you to preserve your harvest for future use. Fresh, Compost, Herbs, Herb Garden, Plants, Dried, Growing, Homegrown, Garden
